"I have several sets of coloring pencils and pens including Prismacolors, Derwent and Staedtler triplus fine liners."
"Even a bunch of neon colors that I'm excited to use on black paper."
"I do a ton of coloring due to the job that I have requires a ton of waiting on a guest to enter our stores, it can be very stressful as we are commission based, I have learned to use the time wisely."
"The standard or true colors appear to be fine, the milky are bigger or the ink comes out in a larger line. These pens dry immediately, are not sticky, and the glitter does not overwhelm the rest of the project. I read the reviews that complained about pens that had leaked prior to arrival, probably during shipping. On the day this product arrived, the delivery man threw the Amazon packages over my gated fence. I was expecting there to be major damage to everything since I saw him throw the boxes at my front door...about 25 feet. If I had not been home, it could have made a mess, but it was not the seller, nor Amazon, it was the one driver who didn't bother to open my gate."
"the pens are transparent and most are only filled 1/2 of the ink holder, i guess due to being without a top a lot of the pens will not draw a line but only short brush strokes, they work a few minutes and then i have to shake them to try to get the ink flowing, My daughter gave me 4 of the coloring books to relieve my stress but these pens are stressing me instead."
"Have only had one pen that would not write right away without running a little warm water on it and shaking it down."
"The only problem I find is that there are not enough greens, golds, brown, reds the primary as most book have a lot of trees, grass and flowers."
"Wide variety of colors and even and consistent delivery of ink and also with the glitter pens."

Best Artists Drawing Sets

Darice 80-Piece Deluxe Art Set
Provides an artist with a wide range of materials in a compact, portable case.
"I bought this for my Great niece and saw the pure delight she expressed when she started using it."
"I bought this set for a seven year old child for a Christmas gift and she loves it."
"I got this for my 5 y/o granddaughter for Christmas."
"My 5 yr old daughter loves this set as she is an avid fan of coloring all the time."
"I bought 2 of these, one for each of my grandsons."
"No your prized fine arts tools."
"My only complaint (and its really quite petty) is that the paper label was glued to the wooden box. At my house, Santa gifts have all the packaging and labels removed before they're wrapped (the elves aren't going to bother with packaging and labels in the workshop, right???!!!)."
"The colored pencils are extremely cheap and don't even compare in quality to Crayola colored pencils, which aren't the best quality from an artist's standpoint. The pastels are horrible—like greasy crayons...again, a set of Crayola oil pastels are of much better quality than these (Crayola actually makes a pretty good set of oil pastels, and Amazon sells them). My kids were gifted two sets over Christmas, and while we appreciate the thought behind it, it was shocking how crappy and cheap the quality of ALL the materials was. You'd do so much better to buy separate, decent sets of oil pastels, watercolors, colored pencils, and drawing pencils. For colored pencils, Prang makes sets that are low-priced but surprisingly high-quality, and if you really want a treat, splurge for a Prismacolor Premiere set. For around $50 you can purchase every type of supply listed in this set, but you'll be getting very good quality materials-- something that, when it comes to art supplies, definitely matters...even for kids!"

The light emitted is quite bright, and expensive tracing paper is really not needed - we have used plain copy paper after the tracing paper that came with the pad was used up, and it works so well there was no need to use anything else."

"neat craft for ages 7-9 can do many things and, take along with you if away from home."
"Fake buttons, fake switch...the only thing that worked was the light and I was not about to take batteries in and out every time my daughter wanted to use it. The function was the same, but there was no weird buttons at the top and the switch was a better quality switch in the back, not on the top."

"Caliart Glitter Gel Pens 48 Sparkly Colors Premium Quality Gel Pens Set Review: I give this product five stars because in my opinion Caliart Glitter Gel Pens are THE BEST glitter gel pens Amazon has to offer. Of the 48 glitter gel pens in this set, 34 are glitter and 14 are neon glitter. (Personally, I have found adult coloring books and gel pens help me to relax which can bring down my pain level). In larger sets of gel pens that I've ordered the color variation in glitter pens can be disappointing, and some sets have very similar colors which I find frustrating. The colors are a nice range from the 14 neon glitter gel pens to the 34 glitter gel pens. **I will add a photo below to show you the specific shade of yellow that I am talking about**. **I will also add a few photos of a design that I colored with Caliart Glitter Gel Pens. That might sound a bit dramatic, but she informed me that based on customer feedback they are now offering a 96 Caliart glitter gel pen set. 48 of the glitter gels pens will the same as the set that I am currently reviewing, but they will also be including 48 replacement glitter ink refills. I would love to write a review on the 96 Caliart glitter gel pen set if there is any interest. *Check out the Caliart 96 Coloring Glitter Gel Pen Set Including 48 Glitter Gel Pens & 48 Glitter Ink Refills. I recommend scribbling on a piece of scrap paper before using each pen, this is a trick I learned along the way while starting any glitter pen."
"My kids love to add glitter to their art work. I was so tired of finding the glitter in the other products dried out after a couple of weeks."
"In my picture, I colored with each pen at least once and there was no bleed through."
"I do have a complaint worth mentioning.......there are too many purples with little variation, too many silvers and the white is virtually useless, but I wouldn't let that stop me from recommending these to other colorists."
"Love these pens, I use them to color with."
"About a dozen of pens already ran out of ink."
"All of the pens work, which is nice, and the colors are nice and vibrant. The pens do run out quickly with use, so it's nice to have plenty more where they came from."
"Even straight out of the package, which I also love, as it made swatching pretty easy, they didn't even start out skippy, so i was really impressed."

Best Drawing Sharpeners

OfficePro Electric Pencil Sharpener - Helical Steel Blade Sharpens All Pencils Including Color, Auto-Stop Feature, Ultra-Portable - Batteries Included
The premium stainless steel helical blade with auto-stop operation ensures a perfect point every time. This battery pencil sharpener is always ready to deliver a consistent fine point while trapping all the shavings. When it comes time to empty the shavings, simply hold the OfficePro pencil sharpener inside a trash can and open the tray. EASY TO GRIP BODY WITH A SECURE SHAVINGS RESERVOIR: Featuring a vertical design with ergonomic features, OfficePro’s heavy-duty pencil sharpener is easy to hold as you sharpen your pencil or dump the shavings. If the shavings tray is opened during sharpening, the blade stops instantly to protect fingers, large and small.
"Fourth, it doesn't eat your pencil like other sharpeners do. Fifth, it doesn't oversharpen, which inevitably leads to broken pencil points and need for more sharpening, resulting in eating the pencil beyond its usefulness. And nowhere on the box or in writing does it make mention of that. Apparently, the "Lifetime Replacement Guarantee" is an Amazon offering, and not an OfficePro offering and that the decal on the box was placed there by Amazon for advertising purposes only."
"This was purchased as a gift for an autistic child who's great pleasure is collecting pencils, and keeping them well sharpened."
"Bought as a lightning deal. Great price - great buy. Shipped and arrived as expected. It sharpens really well. I got tired of using a cheap hand sharpener seemingly every other night as my boys did their homework. It's the perfect size for homeuse."
"This pencil sharpener is amazing."
"When I need razor sharp marking lines, I sharpen my pencils with this as opposed to the box cutter knife method...."
"My Panasonic Auto Stop pencil sharpener that I had for practically 30 years just died out on me, and trust me, I gave that sharpener a lot of use."
"Well, she said, "It was the best sharpener I've ever used.""
"I really like this OfficePro Electric Pencil Sharpener."

"I love it so much I ordered a second desk of this type for our vacation home."
"Our long drawer is kinda of lopsided now because of it and the plastic cases I'm worried about putting too much in there."
"Overall the design is slick, easy to assemble and fits comfortably even in tight spaces (my stool fits underneath the desk to clear additional space.). For those who are curious how easy is it to keep the (black) glass clean, I keep a thin folded sheet atop of it to avoid scratches, add color and it also works as a charcoal et etc."
"My only word of caution is in regards to the trays on the side of the glass top, they can break if you try to put them on roughly or too quickly."
"Nice table except the drawers which are cheap plastic and broke when trying to assemble the 3 drawers together."

From classic wooden toys to crafts, pretend play, and games, Melissa & Doug products provide a launch pad to ignite imagination and a sense of wonder in all children so they can discover themselves, their passions, and their purpose.

"The vintage Tomy set is actually a little *harder* to get a clear picture because the picture ridges aren't as high as the Melissa and Doug set. Nonetheless, I was excited to get the Tomy set because it was the EXACT one that I had as a kid, but just an FYI for all those who are remembering the vintage set as the Golden Era of toys... :). This Fashion Design Kit by Melissa & Doug is really great -- I had one of the Tomy ones when I was a little girl, and really **I** couldn't wait to play with this thing! However, I was a little hesitant with all the bad reviews...I was worried about: 1) The odd paper size (Because, frankly, it would be a pain in the rear to custom-cut endless pieces of paper for my Little Fashion Designer); 2) The smudgy-ness that everyone was talking about with the crayon; 3) The durability. 1) Odd Paper Size. - I got a tablet of drawing paper at the dollar store."
"I gave this to my 5-year-old niece for Christmas."
"Bought this as a gift for my daughter's friend, and my daughter wanted to keep it!"
"This was a gift and she loved it."
"I had fun with it when we were doing art stuff."
"In fact, the bigger size makes it more ideal for my 5 year old to use on trips and not drop her colored pencils/crayons/paper etc while creating."
"The tablet of paper I bought was 9" x 12" (the size of construction paper) and was easy enough to take to my office and cut in half with our paper cutter."
"I cut a bunch of 8 1/2 x 11 paper in half to fit better and got out all of our colored pencils, and that is when we really started to have fun with it!"
